Bandage bandages

Crash bandage - a band of bandage or matter, both ends of which are cut lengthwise (Fig. 21). It is more often applied on the face (Fig. 22), the chin (Fig. 23), the back of the head (Fig. 24) and the crown (Fig. 25).

A T-bandage is a strip of cloth or bandage, to the middle of which another strip is sewn or through it (fig. 26). The horizontal part is fixed around the waist, and the vertical part passes through the crotch (Fig. 27) and is tied or pinned to the first strip.

Bandage dressings are most convenient, as they best hold the dressing material and provide uniform pressure. When applying a bandage dressing, the patient should be in a comfortable position, and the bandage part of the body should be fixed and accessible to the bandager. The leg should be straightened, the foot should be at a right angle (Fig. 28), the arm bent at the elbow (Fig. 29), the shoulder in a small lead from the body, the fingers in slight bending, opposing I and V fingers (Fig. 30). When bandaging the pelvis, abdomen and hips, it is convenient to use special supports (Fig. 31) or sliding tables.


A binder gets to face the patient in order to monitor his condition and see if he is hurting. Bandaging is conducted from bottom to top, from left to right, i.e., clockwise. Use the right hand to unfold the head of the bandage, with the left hand to hold it and straighten it.

Each turn of the bandage (tour) should cover the previous half or 2/3 of its width; fix the end of the bandage on the side opposite to the wound, cutting it along the length and tying around the bandaged part. When bandaging any part of the body, the following types of bandage dressings are used: circular (circular), spiral (fig. 62), creeping, cruciform (fig. 37) or eight-shaped, spike (fig. 64) and turtle (fig. 63).
